Just this season San Angelo witnessed three all-american softball players in Angelo State's Morgan Spearman, Darian Dunn, and Micherie Koria. However if it weren't for the San Angelo Red Chicks softball team Spearman, Dunn, and Koria might have had much different paths.

The Red Chicks were San Angelo's first women's softball team organized back in the 1930's. Jonnie Corbell was a member of the team from 1949 to 1952 until a car accident ended her red chick playing days.

The former third baseman couldn't help but smile when she sat down with Marcus Officer to reflect on her time on the diamond.
